I’ll start this post with a bit of an emergency bargain announcement, because it might not be around for long and you’ll kick yourselves if you miss it. The Rodial Airbrush, an amazing luxury foundation brush with a dome-shaped head and firm, densely-packed bristles is – at time of writing – £10 instead of £50.
Every time I feature this brush I have dozens of people asking where it’s from and I always feel slightly guilty that it’s so expensive, so this discount is a bit of a gift from above. Whether they’re discontinuing it (I bloody hope not!) or its just a flash sale, 80% off is not to be sniffed at. You can find the Air Brush on the Rodial website here*.
Moment of beauty hysteria over, I can tell you more calmly about the other items that are in my summer makeup bag. If you’re an avid IGTV viewer (that’s Instagram videos, to those who refuse to be sucked into the social media vortex) you’ll have already seen the Maybelline Dream Urban Cover in action and I did a little look with the brilliant new NARS Voyageur eye palettes only last week. For lips, Charlotte Tilbury’s new Hot Lips 2, for cheeks, Trinny London’s cream blush in Electra.
There are other beauty heroes included, namely the Dior Pump n Volume mascara that seems to be unbeatable for thick, lacquered lashes and the Invisible Bronze bronzer from Bare Minerals, but overall it’s really quite a tight edit. Summer essentials that perform so well you won’t be looking to change things up anytime soon…
You can find a product shortlist beneath the video pane, but I always find that it’s better to watch first and click later. Although I have quite a bit to get through in a short space of time, I do usually show each product in a bit of detail – how it applies, how the shade looks on my skintone, what the finish is like and so on. (What I’m trying to say is just watch the bloody video. Ha.)
